Skills Gap Research and Resources
The existence and extent of skill deficiencies, shortages, and mismatches has been a topic of keen interest for decades. Since 2000, several new data sets — especially the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey — have shed light on this important topic.
Although many have used the foregoing terms interchangeably, they reflect separate but inter-related topics. Labor shortages differ from skill shortages, and skill deficiencies, shortages and mismatches are different things.
ETA staff established this repository of research studies and other resources on skill deficiencies, shortages and mismatches at the request of state members of the Workforce Information Council. So far we have included about three dozen studies for review and to inform the ongoing discussion.
This repository is a work in progress, and only includes complete information for the newest studies. Except for a few clearly-written conceptual pieces, we are restricting this repository to studies that analyze at least some data. We are certain that we missed some useful work, especially at the state level, so PLEASE suggest additional research results, tools, and resources by sending documents or hyperlinks to the LMI Win-Win Network at firstname.lastname@example.org
